About FCFF:

First Cast Fly Fishing® is New Hampshire's top community first fly fishing organization and was founded on two core principles...

One, we believe fly fishing is an intellectual, physical and emotional activity that helps connect the mind, body, and spirit to the now (present).  As such, we are the first to develop a fly fishing course and guide service based on the principles of Emotional Intelligence.  We call it the E.I. Fly Fishing System™  In a broad sense, we view the "now" as our ability to co-exist with the individual self, other anglers and non-anglers, and his/her local and global community, and environment.  As you can imagine, our fly-fishing instruction is strongly rooted in an educational platform which focuses on the Science and Art of fly fishing. We also emphasize a strong understanding of conservation, habitat rehabilitation & resource sustainability, personal & environmental health, and community enhancement (both, locally & globally).

Two, FCFF is proud to be the only North American based fly-fishing organization which offers lessons and guiding services based upon a not for profit Donation Only fee system. We have purposely chosen a not for profit Donation Only fee system because our mission is to provide high quality fly-fishing instruction to all people regardless of age, gender, race, physical need, and financial ability.

About the Founder of FirstCast Fly Fishing

Mark Foley: Founder & Head Guide

Over 200 years ago, my family emigrated from Ireland to Tilting, New Foundland. Tilting is located on Fogo Island and for decades the Foley’s earned a living as in-shore Cod fisherman. I have visited Tilting, but I grew up fishing trout streams and the coastal waters of New England. My love for fishing and adventure travel has led me to places such as Alaska, British Columbia, Montana, New Zealand, Mexico, Belize, Africa and much more.  In fact, in 1999 I spent one year fishing and hiking the Andes mountain range (from Tierra del Fuego to southern Columbia, and from the Galapagos Islands to Brazil).  Since then, I have regularly returned to fish South America, and at one time, I managed an Orvis endorsed fly-fishing lodge in Argentina. As you can imagine, my fly-fishing adventures around the world have provided many wonderful life experiences.  As such, I love to share my global fishing experiences by taking anglers on national and global fishing trips. But, my true passion is teaching the science and art of fly-fishing.  Speaking of teaching, I am the outdoor challenge instructor and the fly-fishing club adviser at Phillips Exeter Academy, located in Exeter, NH.  I also enjoy volunteering as a certified fly fishing instructor for the NH Fish & Game and Trout Unlimited Youth Programs.  Lastly, I am a certified Boy Scout of America Fly Fishing Merit Badge Counselor.
